A song medley

By From page A5 | January 07, 2013

EDITOR: Why do each of the American standards of our faith in doing good things to refine life sing “My country ’tis of thee, sweet land of liberty — to thee I sing”? Why do such a people who sang so well, and did so well, end in a gross mess of pain of a Stalin-like, Hitler-like, North Korea-like, Hegel philosophy form of life? Dumb, dumb, dumb. Crazy, crazy, crazy.

But “Old man river, he just keeps rollin’ along.” No matter the “runt nut” human potential — “runt nut” just can’t entirely enter the square block into the round hole in his game of arrested development. So be it.

Runt nut will get his due. If not in 2013 A.D., in the year of our Lord, sometime soon enough.

Justice goes along with liberty.
